Billings—Today, Democratic legislative leaders sat for a roundtable discussion on issues facing Montana’s native communities at the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leadership Council (RMTLC) in Billings. The roundtable was a part of the ongoing 2018 Legislative Leadership Tour.
“Montana is strongest when everyone succeeds, and that means making sure our Tribes have the resources they need to thrive,” said Jenny Eck, House Democratic Leader. “That’s why Democratic legislators will continue to fight for critical investments in health, economic development, and public safety that support native communities, both on and off tribal lands.”
Leader Eck, Sen. Margie MacDonald (D-Billings), and Rep. Kathy Kelker (D-Billings) were hosted for a roundtable discussion led by RMTLC Executive Director Bill Snell. Mr. Snell, along with Epidemiology Center Director Mike Andreini, Financial Management Officer Tafuna Tusi, and other RMTLC staff discussed the facility’s programs and how the legislature can support the health, safety, and economic development of Montana’s native communities.
In the afternoon, Leader Eck met with Montana Western Native Voice and ended the day by knocking doors for Rep. Mary McNally.
The 2018 Legislative Leadership Tour will continue tomorrow in Miles City and in Bozeman on Thursday.
